West Wing actress Allison Janney stood with her former castmates on the back of a pickup truck in front of Hillary Clinton’s South Toledo campaign office and looked out at the fans of the long-running television show.
“Never have I wished more that I was C.J. Cregg in this moment,” Ms. Janney joked, of the whip-smart, cool-headed press secretary she played on The West Wing. “I’m not comfortable speaking in front of people, so I just want you all to know I’m so happy to be here in support of Hillary.”
Ms. Janney, a Dayton native, joined fellow West Wing alumni Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Dulé Hill, Joshua Malina, and Mary McCormack on Saturday to rally campaign volunteers across the state.
Allison Janney promised a Toledo audience full of West Wing fans one big incentive if Hillary Clinton is elected president.
She’ll come back and do “The Jackal.”
West Wing viewers remember — and love — the first-season episode in which C.J. Cregg, the unflappable press secretary portrayed by Janney, lip-syncs to the Ronny Jordan song.

Margo is a character who is frustrated with her life. How did you connect to and express her tension and anxiety?
I was very struck by the film’s metaphor of gravity disappearing and whether or not you decide to hold on or let go. I was struck by Margo’s character wanting to let go in the beginning. She’s at an impasse. Her connectivity to the world is gone. Her family is shattered and she has no control over it. I’ve felt that — where I’ve wanted to let go — both as an actress and as a human. I have moments when I just can’t deal with it and I want to go and run away.
Through her experience with Tallulah and the baby, she’s found a new reason to stay. As an actress, I wanted to show that arc. I thought it was beautiful. I had an image of a friend going through a divorce and I was struck by her bed: where her husband use to sleep were her books. When I met with Sian, we put that in the movie. I think the humanity of Margo really resonated with me. I wanted to portray her.
